Walter Robb says it’s clear Amazon was the best option for Whole Foods Market’s future.
The former Whole Foods co-CEO, now an investor in other food companies, said leaders at the grocer made the best possible decision in selling the company to the online retailer at a time when investors were calling for change. Amazon completed its $13.7 billion acquisition of Whole Foods in August.
During an interview with the American-Statesman, Robb spoke about his post-Whole Foods life, his belief in Whole Foods’ future and his pride in helping develop the company into an international brand.
“I spent my whole life and career trying to work to build a sustainable food system and a responsible company,” said Robb, 64. “I’m extremely proud of the whole Whole Foods team and …. what we accomplished.”
